Aloha!  It's been quite some time since my last post, but I'm so glad to be back.  The sun is out and it's time to enjoy the summer!  Nothing reminds me more of summer than a Hawaiian shirt.  They are usually made with beautiful and cheerful prints.  This one is actually a vintage version of a Hawaiian shirt.  It's not like the authentic ones you'd typically see from the islands.  In my family, the men wear Hawaiian shirts untucked in the traditional way at family gatherings.  

I felt pretty lucky to have found a women's version of this style of shirt from the 70's.  Hawaiian prints paired with white denim or pants always pop, so that's what I decided to go with for this post. I added my personal twist on this style with a leather belt and a small black beaded handbag.  These jeans are from J Brand and are called "Love Story".  I bought them several years ago before I started this blog.  They are one of my favorite pairs of pants because of the soft denim material, the slight stretch, and flare legs.  However, I have to wear them with platforms because they are so long, but I'm okay with that.   If you've been following my posts, you know how much I love wearing platforms and flares together and these red Gucci suede ones were the perfect fit. These jeans were actually worn on the day of my very first blog photo shoot, so they are kinda special to me.

What type of clothing reminds you of summer, and do you wear or do anything traditional at your family gatherings?
